Topic: How to get the best mpg
July 20, 2019 / By Audley Question:
With the gas prices as high as they are I started paying attention to my gas usage when I started dropping off and picking up my daughter from school everyday. Before we walked everywhere but the school she got into is about 8.25 miles away. I gave my car a tune up and oil change when I noticed I was going through 1/4 a tank of gas a day. Now its closer to an 1/8 of a tank a day which is way better however I looked up the specs and the tank holds 20 gallons an 1/8 of which is 2.5 gallons. 2.5 gallons of gas to drive 16.5 means 6.6 mpg, I know that is horrible especially since this car is supposed to average 19-26 mpg, which is not wonderful but its a V6 so what did I expect right? What can I do to it to bring it back up to where it should be? I can't afford to be burning through gas like this.
And yes the check engine light is on, but it randomly goes out after I change something then comes back on later.
Oh and there is no autozone in Hawaii
